Dear Ministry of Justice,
Under the freedom of information act I would like to know the following information please.
If someone is a convicted paedophile what restrictions do they have imposed on them to safeguard children. To clarify this point further and if not covered in their restrictions, could you please tell me if a convicted paedophile is allowed to live in a house with young children or near schools.
Also, would the local authority who look after children and the public housing be aware of this conviction.
Are housing associations allowed lawfully to place a family with young children next door to someone who is convicted of the above offence.
